The phone is more important then the kids

Tomorrow as a family event I have asked my bf to limit his phone/facebook time to two times a day. He is normally on it from time he wakes up to the time he goes to bed with little social time in between. I asked him tonight as a favor to me to not being on facebook at all, then after he said he wouldn't because of all the messages he has because he is part of the Anonymous group that I would be okay with twice tomorrow. But I feel if he can't even do that for me we are over tomorrow. I feel his political views are WAY more important then his family. It sucks and I really hope I don't have to do it, but I really feel like he has become more glued to a phone/computer/social media then he realizes.

Am I wrong for feeling or asking this? I really need someone to talk to right now.

I would be upset as well.  All he would have to do is tell his group he will be offline to spend with people in his life.  I am sure they would understand.

Still upset, but were going out. We'll see what happens I hope I don't have to kick him out/dump him I really do like him.

I hope today goes well and he doesn't spend the whole time on his phone.

Personally, I think you are over reacting a bit.  You can't determine or tell him how often he can be on his phone no matter what's going on.  You want to "limit" his usage and that's just wrong.  I also think your comment about if he can't do it for you that you are over tomorrow.  Really?  He has to do it because HE wants to do it, not because you want him to.

You have a right to your feelings, but telling him how much he can or can't be on the computer is treating him like a child. And seriously, you're going to leave him over something that lame?
